Its been a while since I’ve been on the forum. Since my last time on here a lot has happened. Got a divorce, moved, got custody of all 3 of my kids and got a new shop. Its still a work in progress but its mine. Since we’re in a pandemic and not much else to do other than work and be home. I decided to build something I’ve always wanted to build for myself. So I built my bar. This is the second bar I’ve built but the first was for a neighbor and made out of pallet wood and reclaimed lumber. The metal on the front and sides of my bar is salvaged off an old log cabin that predates the civil war. I estimate the metal to be at least 100 years old. The wood trim is all pine from Lowe’s or home depot and has been burnt with a torch then stained. The top is 3/4 plywood with a pine edge I made. Again the top was burnt to bring out the grain and stained. I got a piece of aluminum diamond plate and cut out a bar and shield and used epoxy to bond it to the top. I added a few Harley poker chips from my local Harley dealers and covered everything in about 1/4 inch of epoxy so I have a nice smooth top. I made a few wine glass holders and added them under the bar top. I also built a wine rack that hangs on the wall behind the bar and a small pub table off to the side.
